It should game well - once you get that GPU out of there. The 9600 is the weak spot, I'd do whatever I could to at least get a 5770 in there. I'm not a real Earthwatts fan either, but they're decent.

Since price is an issue id go with the 9800GT there is a Mail in rebate for the product at the moment bringing the Price to $85. Which is very good.

Not to be a downer, but it's not going to perform the way you'd like, especially in graphically intensive apps. If you can't afford a GPU just yet and gaming is your focus, you might be better to just hold off until you can.

Umm dude, my system now is a goddamn AMD Athlon 3800+ Socket 939, 3 GB Ram 400mhz -.- so i think that the graphics card wont be a big problem!

If you have no funds to upgrade from a 9600GT: you'd be fine lowering resolutions/settings (or both) for a wee bit

Haha, at 1024x768, nevermind then. I was assuming something a tad higher since you mentioned gaming. Game on!
